(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Someone dropped a 50 thousand dollars check in a Salvation Army kettle. Salvation Army spokeswoman Kathy Scott says the donor doesn't want to be revealed. He just wants his money to feed the poor.

The windfall, along with three other donations totaling 30 thousand dollars, will accelerate the chapter's plans to reorganize family services in Salt Lake City.

The checked was dropped in a red kettle outside an Albertson's grocery store on Christmas eve.

The Salvation Army waited for the check to clear a bank, then contacted the donor to confirm his intentions.

That and other donations pushed the chapter's kettle drive to more than 300 thousand dollars for the holiday season.
